A British priest who was accused of sexually abusing a man when he worked with the Catholic Church in South Africa during the 1980s has apologised.
On Tuesday William Segodisho told a press conference in South Africa that Father William MacCurtain had repeatedly sexually abused him when he was a teenager staying in sheltered accommodation in Johannesburg.
He said he wanted the priest to stand trial in South Africa.
In a statement William MacCurtain, 84, said he deeply regretted the pain he had caused Mr Segodisho and apologised to him unreservedly.
A statement from the Catholic Jesuit order said Father MacCurtain was suffering from a number of chronic medical conditions and was in a Jesuit nursing facility in the UK.
